Moose Hide Campaign Day is a day of ceremony. It’s a day where all Canadians are called to join together to take a stand against violence towards women and children and to take practical steps for our collective journey of reconciliation.
What started 11 years ago with a small gathering of men and boys intent on raising awareness of the crisis of violence against Indigenous woman and children, has now become a national ceremony inviting all Canadians to join together to end violence against all women and children.
On Moose Hide Campaign Day we challenge men and boys–and we invite all Canadians–to fast together from sunrise to sunset to deepen our experience and resolve to create safe families, communities and a safe country for all women and children.
Fasters will be supported on their fasting journey throughout the day—Learn more about fasting here
Join Moose Hide Campaign Day via our livestream to witness and engage in traditional ceremonies, hear from keynote speakers and the campaign co-founders and to participate in interactive online workshops with traditional knowledge keepers and facilitators.
Moose Hide Campaign Day will be held online with the guidance of traditional knowledge keepers.
And we invite you to hold or join your own local Moose Hide Campaign Day event or ceremony to align with the livestream from Victoria, BC.
Also join the in-person Walk to End Violence in Victoria, BC, or hold or join your own Walk to End Violence in your community.
Supporters are encouraged to wear and share the moose hide pins on the day (and every day!) and to organize events within their organizations, schools or communities. Reach out to us to find out about our “Ambassador” training sessions to help you coordinate your own local Moose Hide Campaign Day ceremonies/events.
Registration for Moose Hide Campaign Day is now open and participation is always free!
